After Georgia Republicans misplaced two seats within the U.S. Senate and helped lose the battle for Donald Trump’s reelection, they determined to do one thing about it. They passed a voter suppression law.

When your concepts don’t win individuals over, simply preserve the opposite aspect from getting votes. Republican efforts to suppress the vote have been taking place throughout the nation for some time and can solely intensify after the latest election.

It’s slightly more durable to promote your “voter integrity” when one ingredient of it will forestall individuals from giving water to voters ready in lengthy strains. (Lengthy strains which might be, not coincidentally, extra usually in precincts the place Black people who tend to vote Democratic live.)

As a topper to the latest Jim Crow-style laws that handed in Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp had a bill-signing photograph op with six white male legislators in entrance of a painting of a plantation that once enslaved 100 people. Oh, and whereas the photograph op was taking place, a black feminine legislator was being dragged away screaming to a ready police automobile for the crime of knocking on the governor’s door. If this was a screenplay, individuals would say it was simply approach too apparent and on the nostril.
